Comparison Between Conditions of Major Roads Within and Outside the Port of Durban
O. M. Kunene,D. Allopi
Engineering, Technology & Applied Science Research , 2013,
Abstract: Over the past years road traffic has increased at the Port of Durban. Due to the lack of maintenance, this has resulted in road deterioration. Roads are considered as the most important transport mode at the Port of Durban. It is an important mean for facilitating economic growth of local, regional and national industries. For the Port to maintain global competitiveness with the current trend of globalization, it has to be ensured that the roads are well maintained. The purpose of the paper is to provide an overview of road condition within and outside the Port. Verification and assessment of the condition of the existing eight major roads was conducted. Comparisons between the condition of the eight major roads within and outside the Port were highlighted. Conclusions and recommendations were also drawn based on the findings.

Analysis of Relationships between Port Activity and Other Sectors of the Economy: Evidence from Cote d’Ivoire  [PDF]
Nomel Paul Stéphane Essoh
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2013.33042

This research paper aims to study the correlation between the port activity and the activity of the different services sectors. By comparing trends between them and analyzing the causality relationships between the port traffic and the other economic sectors, our study tends to present how the activity of the port of Abidjan could have a decisive effect on the local economy. To meet our objectives, correlation analysis and statistical test tools Eviews and other techniques have been run with data provided by local agencies and port authority. By doing so, our research study finds that there is existing correlation between port activity and activity generated by the other services sectors and its contribution can accelerate the economic growth.

Climate and Epidemiology of Malaria in Port Harcourt Region, Nigeria  [PDF]
Vincent Ezikornwor Weli, Sunday Ighovie Efe
American Journal of Climate Change (AJCC) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ajcc.2015.41004
Abstract: The study examines the effect of climate on the occurrence of malaria in Port Harcourt. To achieve this, the study adopted the survey designs which involved the use of archival data of climate parameters and the survey of hospitals for epidemiological data of malaria cases reports within Port Harcourt and environs. The archival weather data on temperature and rainfall were collected from the Nigeria Meteorological Service Agency (NIMET) for a period of sixty-five (65) years (1950-2014), and those for medical records of malaria cases were extracted from the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospitals (UPTH), Braithwaite Memorial Hospital (BMH) and some renowned private hospitals in Port Harcourt and environs for a period of sixty-five (65) years. The multiple regression analysis was used to determine the relative effect of rainfall and temperature on malaria incidence. The polynomial and linear trend analysis was used for the trend pattern of malaria cases, rainfall and temperature. The results revealed an annual rainfall of 2375 mm, with an increase of 1581 mm of rainfall from 1950 till date. It also showed an urban warming of 3°C from 1950 to 2014, and a mean of 27.2°C in temperature in Port Harcourt. The results of the multiple regression reveal that the prevalence of malaria is significantly dependent on the increase in rainfall and temperature in Port Harcourt. There are double maxima of malaria cases with 1006 cases in July and 1540 cases in September, which coincide with the months with double rain maxima. On this premise and health care planning and development, it is recommended that regular clearing of drains and the surrounding environment on monthly basis should be intensified, as well as the distribution of mosquito’s insecticide net by the three tier of government.
Pattern of Cervical Cytology and High Risk Human Papillomavirus Strains in Non HIV Positive Women Presenting for Cervical Cancer Screening in Port Harcourt, Nigeria  [PDF]
T. K. Nyengidiki, E. O. Oranu
Journal of Biosciences and Medicines (JBM) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jbm.2018.66005
Abstract: Background: The high risk human papilloma virus (hrHPV) is largely associated with cervical cancer with identifiable dysplastic changes on cytology. The use of cervical cancer screening strategies has largely improved the general outcome of cervical malignancies globally. Objective: To compare cervical cytological features against human papilloma virus genotypes in non HIV positive patients presenting for cervical cancer screening in UPTH. Method: A cross sectional prospective study of 82 non HIV positive women who presented for cervical cancer screening at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching hospital. A prestructured questionnaire was used to obtain socio demographic information. Cytobrush extracts of cervical samples were subjected to cytology and human papilloma virus DNA genotyping using real-time polymerase chain reaction. The information obtained was analyzed using SSPP version 20 and results presented as frequency tables, percentages and tested for significance using student t-test and chi square with p value < 0.05 at 95% confidence interval. Results: The mean age of the women was 36.61 ± 7.75 with an age range of 22 - 58 years. The prevalence of HrHPV was 4.88%. Twenty-two of the respondent have abnormal cytological pattern. While the 4 cases of HrHPV positivity were of normal cytological pattern and occurred in respondents that were in their reproductive age, the 22 that showed abnormal cervical cytology were mainly of low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LGSIL). There was no case of high grade squamous cell intraepithelial lesion (HGSIL). Conclusion: HrHPV prevalence rate of 4.88% occurring in low socioeconomic class patients. All the cervical abnormalies were of LGSIL, hence the risk of transformation into cervical cancer is equally low. There may be no correlation between hrHPV and cervical cytology in low risk patients.

Abstract: the objective of this article is to argue the formation of the brazilian port system of 1910 (creation of the federal inspectorial of the ports, rivers and canals) the 2001 (creation of the aquatic way transport national agency) detaching the constants initiatives and attempts of improvement, equipment and modernization of the ports. beyond the introduction and the conclusion, the text is divided in three periods: the beginning of the centralization and the formation of a port national system 1910-1934; b) centralization and planning: equipment and consolidation of a national port system 1934-1990; e) the modernization and privatization of ports 1990-2001. the long one of each period is argued the creation of the diverse responsible agencies for the specific ports, laws and decrees and national ports plans.
A Personnel Detection Algorithm for an Intermodal Maritime Application of ITS Technology for Security at Port Facilities  [PDF]
Mouhammad K. Al Akkoumi, Robert C. Huck, James J. Sluss
Journal of Transportation Technologies (JTTs) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jtts.2011.14016
Abstract: With an overwhelming number of containers entering the United States on a daily basis, ports of entry are causing major concerns for homeland security. The disruption to commerce to inspect all containers would be prohibitive. Currently, fences and port security patrols protect these container storage yards. To improve security system performance, the authors propose a low cost fully distributed Intelligent Transportation System based implementation. Based on prior work accomplished in the design and fielding of a similar system in the United States, current technologies can be assembled, mixed and matched, and scaled to provide a comprehensive security system. We also propose the incorporation of a human detection algorithm to enhance standard security measures. The human detector is based on the histogram of oriented gradients detec- tion approach and the Haar-like feature detection approach. According to the conducted experimental results, merging the two detectors, results in a human detector with a high detection rate and lower false posi- tive rate. This system allows authorized operators on any console to control any device within the facility and monitor restricted areas at any given time.
